In spite of an apparent recent increase of interest in shrews and an impressive bibliography on the evolution of this fascinating group of mammals, until now there has been no comprehensive work that deals with current problems in shrew evolutionary research. This book represents an attempt to redress this omission, by offering a volume that seeks to review the present state of our knowledge of shrew evolutionary biology. Includes many black & white illustrations.
